Hi Video-Cellar,

I was just reading the above, particlarly:

"2. For films released between 1 July 1957 and 1 August 1989, the transitional terms of the 1988 act state that these films are protected for the term that they were granted under the 1956 Copyright Act. This is 50 years from being completed or 50 years from first publication if that occurs within 50 years of being completed."

So I compiled a little list of films, made in the UK, released between 1 July 1957 and 31 December 1959.

The Abominable Snowman (1957)
Cat Girl (1957)
Night of the Demon (1957 - aka Curse of the Demon)
The Cosmic Monster (1958)
The Crawling Eye (1958)
Blood of the Vampire (1958)
Corridors of Blood (1958)
The Revenge of Frankenstein (1958)
Dracula (1958)
Fiend without a Face (1958)
The Woman Eater (1958)
The Mummy (1959)
The Headless Ghost (1959)
The Giant Behemoth (1959)
Crime in the Museum of Horrors (1959)
The Hound of the Baskevilles (1959)
Jack the Ripper (1959)
First Man into Space (1959)

Would these be ok for uploading? - (I don't have them all but I'm hoping!).

I guess the US distributors got a hold on them but they were all 'published' first in the UK so they should be covered by UK law!
